The Ideal Candidate

Are you an ideal candidate for breast augmentation?

Women consider breast augmentation surgery for a variety of reasons.

Whatever your reasons, there are still certain considerations the surgeon must weigh before approving you for this surgery.

  • Your age is another. Younger women in general recover from surgery more quickly, but there are also age considerations that guide the type of implant you can have. Saline implants can be placed for women 18 years of age or older; silicone implants can be placed for women over 21 years of age.

  • Your understanding. You should not schedule any surgery without a clear understanding of how it is performed, what you can expect during recovery, and how the risks balance the benefits.
